       libesd - GNOME Enlightenment Sound Daemon Interface library

       The libesd library provides access to the Enlightened Sound Daemon (esd).  The Enlightened
       Sound Daemon is launched automatically by libesd if the daemon is not already  present.	A
       sockets	connection  is	managed with the daemon by this API.  The connection allows sound
       data to be written to the daemon for playback, or read from the daemon for recording  pur-

       The  daemon  will automatically sample an incoming stream from a client to the best format
       that is supported by the sound device. Therefore, client programs do not have to  be  con-
       cerned with writing platform-specific code for handling sound data.

       The  daemon  supports  caching. Each sample is given an ID tag, and sound data can then be
       accessed via this API with this ID tag.

       If the audio device supports simultaneous record and playback at the same bit  resolution,
       bit rate, and number of channels (in other words, is full duplex), then the daemon and API
       also supports simultaneous reading and writing from the audio device.
